Big Tourist City

Gabriellas grandpa
Had a nice uneventful sail from Zihuatanejo to Acapulco. I only burned about 5 gallons of diesel on a 120 mile trip, so that tells you I did some sailing. I burn about 1/2 gallon an hour or about 12 miles per gallon. There were 4 other boats who left before me and I was the first one in the bay(Gabriella will like that bit of info). I'm anchored in about 55 feet of water and am glad to have my anchor windlass fixed. There are all manner of water craft buzzing by me until midnight and they sure go close to my boat. I have about 10 different wifi addresses that show up on my laptop but not one of them are open. People are pretty smart about securing their internet in Acapulco. I have to go to an air conditioned internet cafe to get online and pay a whopping 15 pesos an hour. Karen will be proud of me for what I had for dinner last night. I sat in an open air Italian restaurant and had a grilled split breast of chicken with rice, broccoli, and garlic bread. It was quite delicious and cost 52 pesos. Healthy...healthy, right Karen? I'm going to leave for Zihuatanejo tomorrow morning because there will be favorable winds and I've done all the exploring I care to in the big city. I'm starting to belive what one of my hats have printed on it...Allergic to Land. I will update in Zihua where I have internet on the boat and will keep a lookout for Gabriellas friend "The Crocodile".
